Chapter 4 Christmas Carol
Ghost of Christmas Present
Youngest spirit out of
all his brothers
holding up a torch
had kind, gentle eyes
long dark hair
it's face was young and happy
Bob Cratchit's family
#Husband and Wife
Oldest daughter in the Cratchit family
fragile and weak
low chance of surviving
a boy and a girl
they were thin
their clothes were old and poor
they were trembling with cold
their eyes were sad
looked older than children
Scrooge's nephew, Fanny's son
Tries to show compassion for Scrooge despite his unwelcoming attitude
• The Spirit showed him the streets. Scrooge saw poor people bringing their goose or chicken to the Baker to be baked.
• The Spirit touched the dinners with his torch to make them extra tasty so people can enjoy this night to its fullest
• The Spirit brought Scrooge to Bob Cratchit's house.
• Upon learning about Tiny Tim's supposed death, the Spirit took this chance to teach Scrooge the reality to his words he so foolishly said.
•The Spirit showed Scrooge his nephew's Christmas party
•The crowd there all emphasized Scrooge's negative qualities •Fred debunks them all, his love for his uncle unwavering
•The Spirit showed Scrooge two children, who supposedly was owned by humanity.
•When Scrooge tries to unconsciously show them sympathy, the Spirit took this chance to, once again, show him the errors of his words.
•Scrooge was in his bedroom
•Unlike the last time, Scrooge was ready to see what the next spirit has in store for him
•The Ghost of Christmas Present appears inside Scrooge's house and dragged him out to observe Christmas
•Scrooge realized the mistakes he made.
•Unfortunately, before he could tell the Spirit, the Spirit died as it was twelve midnight.
•He remembered his friend's ghost's words about that the third spirit would show up at twelve midnight.
Bob Cratchit's home
Fred's (Scrooge's nephew) home
It was one o'clock( when Scrooge woke up)
The spirit showed Scrooge all these scenes of the Cratchit family and Fred's conversations about Scrooge at Christmas day
to show Scrooge how does Bob Crachit's family and Fred's family think about Scrooge
At the end of the chapter the spirit showed two poor hungry children. Scrooge ask if they had a home or family. The spirit replied with the words he told to the fat gentlemen that came to his office on Christmas eve.
This made Scrooge see the reality behind his words, that he didn't realize that there were children in need when he spoke his words to the two fat gentlemen.
Bob Cratchit wished Scrooge a merry Christmas and so does Fred even though everyone else was against it.
They gave in as it was Christmas, but
the underlying hate was evident.
Scrooge was in conflict with his previous actions when the Spirit showed him Bob and Tiny Tim.
He does not want Tiny Tim to die, which leaves him in conflict with all his previous words, like his criticisms about having too many people on Earth.
He was also shown two worn-out, underfed children. His mind about humans and the world slowly changed
as the Spirit kept using his words against him.
